, a few pennies better. that is $100 a year. operating earnings from the s&p in an environment where the long-term u.s. government reference riskless rate is under 2%. that is a bargain. melissa: i was interested to see the latest trading volumes. you are talking about the average investor walking away. in august, it was down 37%. that is year over year. that is compared to last august. when we see that the markets are up 9% for the year, i wonder if the individual investor is walking away from returns? >> i think so, melissa. the investing class is still undergoing dramatic shock and recovery from it. that is why all of these bond flows continue to go into funds and those fund managers have to go by treasuries at 1.6-1.7 because they have to do something to put it to work. if you believe that interest rates are going to be low for a number of years, and i do, i believe bernanke will do what he says, then stock prices are headed higher. maybe much higher. lori: isn't it a problem then that the fed is manipulating the stock market? therefore, do you have to be a little bit cautious th
know what the economic environment is here in the states and globally. so you just cannot have high expectations. and if you have a good surprise, let's say overall earnings rather than the 2.4% let's say earnings are up, 2 to 5%, you know s that really a big surprise? i'm not really sure it is. because you are still pretty close to 0. and nobody is expecting the economy to really accelerate over the course of the next couple of quarters. >> susie: all right so, what is going to be driving investment strategy over the coming weeks and months? is it going to be the earnings or is it going to be more of the big economic picture and the elections? >> how does this play out in the markets. >> well, i am a top down guy. so i want to know what the global economy is doing. i want to know what the u.s. economy is doing. in my mind, we're going to be in this modest growth, modest inflation environment for a while. i mean at least through 2013. but i think it is going to be positive. i think the types of sectors that we're looking at are the ones that are really going it to be sensitive to a
security incidents from last june to this july. these incidents paint a clear picture that the environment in libya was fragile at best and could degrade quickly. certainly not a environment where posts should be directed to normalized operations and reduced security resources in accordance with an artificial timetable. at today's noon hearing on the hill we'll hear from lieutenant colonel andrew wood, the green beret from the utah army national garth who was in charge of a security team in benghazi that left libya a few weeks before the attack. he told cbs as soon as he arrived in february there was pressure from the state department to shrink the security force. bill: it is unfolding as we speak here. peter, thank you. on that leading our coverage in washington. martha. martha: there is much more on this stunning development. did the white house cover up the attack in benghazi for political reasons? that is the question, really. that's what it boils down to. we will ask that to house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa. he will join us in a little while. he will lead the congressi

you could even say we're a little bit ambitious. right. you come in to the environment, many people came in without a job. they were volunteers and want to get a job. some people -- they want to get noticed by the right people. and they, you know, and you have people who have been hired who want maybe more responsibility. right than they probably traditional in their job. and the department heads who are racing against each other maybe to get a little more budget than the other and get a little more turf than the others and you might expect. you have the thing going on it's a chaotic time. you need to get control of this. because, you know, in this environment, where there no sort of norms, it's like building -- it is like building a village from scratch. everybody comes to a place with no rules or enormous, no structures, right, it's like the wild west. and not everybody, you know, some people who, you know, have their own tactics for getting their own way. right. sometimes even good people lose control of the inner jerks. it's a problem early in the campaign. we all have them. com

this past week. in this highly polarized environment both campaigns have strategically been appealing to their respective political bases. what is unusual about this election cycle is most voters have picked sides early and lead to our polling right after the convention. looks like the final weekend of the campaign. they tell us they are firmly committed to their candidate and the number of undecided voters has been surprisingly very low. single digits. it is not about persuasion. it is about mobilization. both of the conventions were like that. in the next few weeks we will see a lot about mobilizing folks to come out particularly because of early voting which has started in so many states. the middle is shrinking as far as these campaigns are concerned. we will talk about how there is still a middle to america. once you get beyond the campaign labels but clearly those are what drive strategy in campaigns and the electoral politics. if you look at the campaign ads, in new york we are not -- we don't get a lot of ads. i have seen one of you in virginia are seeing and if you are in any

into politics out of an ideological background, maybe the academic environment or a writer or some people come out of a practical background. he comes out of a practical business background. the reason i like him as president, this is what we need right now, a practical man. i think president obama is overwhelmed by too much ideology too often and can't see his way through it. i think he has an unrealistic view of the islamic extremist movement. i think it's almost like a fantasy world about it. >> mayor rudy giuliani, good to see you. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> convicted child sex abuser jerry sandusky is saying in his own words that he didn't do it. a sentencing hearing is now under way in bellefonte, pennsylvania, for the former penn state assistant football coach. armen keteyian file this had report before heading inside the courtroom. >> reporter: jerry sandusky is now inside courtroom number two. just under a little three months ago, he was convicted on 45 counts of sexually abusing ten young boys. he is expected to do what he did not do at his trial, to stand up and profess
